Beyond Words – Volume Two – Blues Instrumentals is the second in LocoBop’s series of instrumental music performed by some of the greatest musicians of the respective art forms featured in the series. In this case, the art form is Blues!

Young blues gun Eddie Cotton is one of the most exciting blues guitarists today. He opens the album with a track from his LocoBop release Live at the Alamo Theatre. When talking about vintage soul-jazz credits, they don’t get much better than those of high-powered guitarist Wayne Boyd, whose contributions to this album come from The New Orleans Sessions (Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop). ● Beale Street headliner Papa Don McMinn demonstrates the guitar chops that made him famous on “Things Are Changing” from his LocoBop album Blues Ain’t a Color. ● Tenor sax maestro Chucky C. drives his band Clearly Blue on a sample from his Sound of New  Orleans/LocoBop album From New Orleans to the World. B-3 organ master Carson Whitsett’s “Po’ Mouthing” is an aptly titled lament from his LocoBop album Organic. ● The Memphis All Stars (Greg Reding, Robert & Sly Diesel Clayborne, and Walter White) romp through an infectious track from their LocoBop album Blues Train. ● New Orleans  natives Selwyn Cooper & The Hurricane Blues Band know whereof they speak when they perform “Hurricane Blues” from Louisiana Swamp Blues (Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop). ● Steve Franco (Mr. Boogieman) declares his piano blues authority with a self-penned track from New Orleans Boogie (Sound of New Orleans/LocoBop). ● Ivory Joe Hunter’s “Hey Pretty Baby” is rare for two reasons: Blessed with an inimitable voice and piano style, he offers here an instrumental featuring himself on a Hammond organ. ● Closing out this session, Group DeVille - Carson Whitsett (organ), Jack Bruno (drums), Bill Cooley (guitar), and Scott Chambers (bass) – “Take a Slow Drive to Memphis” from their LocoBop album The Bond.
